Over the last few years, organizations have increasingly adopted cloud-native SaaS applications to meet changing agility and productivity needs. While the growth of SaaS apps has enabled cost savings and other gains for organizations, it has also raised a significant challenge for security teams.  Ensuring a secure way to use essential productivity-enhancing tools has become a critical strategic priority for security teams. Today, we are thrilled to announce the public preview of SaaS Security Posture Management capabilities in Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps that will enable you to view, identify, and remediate misconfigurations across your applications to improve your organizational security.


Lack of visibility, misconfigurations, and sophisticated attacks are some of the common threats that put your sensitive data and users of SaaS apps at risk. In today’s threat landscape, customers need a new approach to:

  • Proactively strengthen the security posture of SaaS apps enabled in your enterprise.
  • Detect any breach/attack on these applications and respond quickly.
  • Prevent any sensitive data leakage even in the case of an attack.

Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps is designed to help secure your SaaS applications and protect sensitive data in your organization against evolving threats. Empower your security teams with enhanced visibility and assessment tools to identify usage patterns, assess risk and business levels, and manage more than 31,000 SaaS applications to defend against threats.
